Obstruction of the fallopian tubes is one of the common causes of problems with conceiving a child. Many women, coming to the consultation with the gynecologist, learn about the presence of adhesions in the fallopian (fallopian) tubes, which may be caused by various inflammatory processes.
Any infection that can penetrate the fallopian tubes from the vagina and uterus is dangerous to the health of the woman, as these channels themselves have a weak immune defense.
It is due to this property that the embryo, which is half foreign to the female body, is not rejected and transported to the uterus.
If the egg cannot move freely along the canal, then we can talk about the obstruction of the fallopian tubes.
Blocked fallopian tubes can be caused by the following: endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, fibroids, scars, which can be caused by ectopic pregnancies or some sexually transmitted infections.
The fallopian tubes can sometimes be repaired, but in vitro fertilization (IVF) is usually recommended.
To identify the problem, doctors may use x-rays (Hysterosalpingography) or view the organs through a viewing tube (laparoscope)
